The First Connected Foosball Arcade Table

Volkswagen – official partner of the French Football Federation – wanted to bring sports fans closer to their idols, by offering an innovative new gameplay experience. So UNIT9 teamed up with DDB Paris to develop a new model of entertainment. Creating the first-ever connected foosball arcade table.

Foosball Arcade

Revolutionising the traditional foosball table for the digital age, we connected a social audience with the physical gameplay, so an online community can influence live games and launch takeovers. The rules of foosball are turned on their head in the digital world. Gameplay becomes even more fast-paced and unpredictable.

To bring to life the first connected foosball table we brought together a crack team of engineers, 3D artists, developers and designers. And then we invited stars from the French national football team – the likes of Paul Pogba and Olivier Giroud – to beta test the gameplay. Bringing the online community and football fans closer to their idols.

Foosball Arcade is a standalone piece of product design due to appear at the FIFA 2018 World Cup as well as the UEFA Women’s Euro Tournament in 2017. Offering fans a new type of connected experience.

Spider-Man Surprises Unsuspecting Starbucks Customers

Meeting Spider-Man would be extremely exciting, but you probably wouldn’t expect him to just be at your local Starbucks, picking up some coffee on his way to a meeting with The Avengers. He’s supposed to catch you as you fly through the air after an attack from the Green Goblin. Then you’re already screaming, unlike all these people who were calmly waiting for a caffeinated beverage before their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man dropped out of the ceiling.

That’s when they started screaming:

(h/t:distractify / Sony Pictures)

The prank was set up to promote Spider-Man: Homecoming, but that’s not Tom Holland in the suit. Though Holland is admirably lithe and able, he is not a professional stunt-man, unlike Chris Silcox, who is usually the body inside the suit. His account isn’t verified, but some guy named Chris Silcox on Instagram sure loves dressing up as Spidey and running around town, so I’m fairly certain this is him

Mashable interviewed Silcox and the ad group that came up with the idea—they had to find a Starbucks with high ceilings so they could build a false one for Silcox to crouch in, then tie him up in a harness to await his targets. It’s actually kind of nerve-wracking to watch. While some people are thrilled to meet a Marvel super hero, enough people screamed that I was a little afraid Spider-Man would get a cup of hot coffee in the face.

Silcox said the best part was, of course, the kids:

“When a very bright upside-down superhero appears out of no where, what do you do? Little kids seemed to take to Spider-Man best, which was funny! [They thought,] ‘Of course Spidey’s here … Why wouldn’t he be here to grab a Cap’n Crunch Frappuccino?! It’s hot out!’ Plus, if a mocha latte was thrown at me, the amazing baristas working with us — who were actually working and gave every single person we surprised a drink and a smile — would have helped me clean my Tony Stark suit in a jiffy.”

This whole thing definitely made me excited for Spider-Man the film, and also for an absolutely enormous cup of coffee. I mean, who knows who I’ll meet?

Winter is Here – Game of Thrones’ Season 7 poster Series

With Game of Thrones Season 7 less than a month away, HBO officially has zero chill: the network is choosing to mark the Summer Solstice with an epic online campaign to “winterize” the web, using Twitter, Reddit and Google to remind us all that winter is here.

Ikea Recipe Sheets makes cooking easier for everyone

IKEA’s Genius Recipe Sheets Make Cooking Easy For Everyone With A Simple Trick. Watch the video and be amazed.

IKEA’s mission on this Earth is to make everything simple and understandable, which comes in handy for those of us stumbling through life without a clue. While their furniture sometimes misses the mark, a series of recipes they’ve just released makes cooking look easier than Paint By Numbers, and we’re pretty sure we’ll never be able to follow a normal recipe again.

The Canadian branch of the Swedish furniture tycoon teamed up with Toronto-based marketing company Leo Burnett to create Cook This Page, an ingenious set of illustrated recipes which they unveiled at a recent IKEA Canada kitchen event. Each one displays drawings of the ingredients needed, and the prospective chef just has to fill in the blanks. The best part? They’re all printed on parchment paper using food-safe ink, so once everything is in place, the page can be rolled up and tossed in the oven. Seriously, does it get any lower-maintenance than that?

Cook This Page has yet to reach IKEA stores, but the concept is so brilliant that we suspect it might even replace the cookbook in due time! See it for yourself below, and let us know if you would attempt any of these scrumptious delights. (h/t)

Huge Army Tank Break Wall in Dubai Mall

A video showing a tank ripping through a wall in Dubai Mall has left residents stunned

Dubai: A video that has been circulating among UAE residents has left viewers in awe, as a tank was recorded smashing through a wall in Dubai Mall.

However, the footage did not cause any damage as it seems to have been part of a stage production.

The video was posted online on Wednesday December 14, 2016, and the tank was also recorded driving along Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Boulevard with a police escort.

While social media users debated on why the tank was being filmed at Dubai Mall, it was actually part of the British car show The Grand Tour, which includes Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May (aka ex-Top Gear people).

The Dubai Mall shoot forms part the finale of their new show and fans were invited to take part.

Having travelled around the world — from Johannesburg to California and Rotterdam, with Stuttgart, Scotland and Nashville — the show came to the UAE when the hosts pitched a tent at the foot of the iconic Burj Khalifa tower.
